- Attitude is Everything
The story behind this once in a lifetime photo by Jim Rider, Indiana photographer
A few years ago, Jim Rider, an Indiana photographer, was in his truck headed for a photo shoot. However, on the way, he saw something that in some ways would change his life.
Crossing the street in front of him were nine baby ducks... with no mother duck in sight. As he stopped the truck, they were approaching the curb on the other side, when all of a sudden, they stopped. Trapped, no place to go, they waited for over ten minutes; each looking around for someone to lead the way. Finally, one of the baby ducks got the thought 'enough is enough' and made the move to climb the curb. Scratching and clawing, he made it! And after that move, each little duck, one by one, followed their leader!
I fell in love with this wonderful photo about ten years ago when I saw it for the fist time. The Associated Press had named it one of the top 50 photos of the year.
When we decided to do a book with talented author and speaker, Vicki Hitzges, we zeroed in on the title, Attitude is Everything...The 10 Rules for Staying Positive.
As we were working on cover designs, I happened to be going through my files when I saw it... the photo of the baby ducks. The photo, and the story behind it, was a perfect fit for Vicki's book!
When great content comes together with a great cover, magic happens! And that's exactly what has happened with one of our best-selling books. You can read it in 30 minutes, but its message is so engaging and thought-provoking that it can change the way you think about life.
Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference and Vicki Hitzges reinforces that message when you need it most! And now that you know the story behind the photo, it will bring a smile to your heart every time you see it.
